All Tomorrow’s Parties are very excited for our first ATP festival in Iceland on June 28th & 29th at the former NATO base in Keflavík, which is now called Ásbrú. It will be headlined by the incomparable NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS. Mr Cave states that the first All Tomorrow's Parties Iceland will be: "My favourite festival in my favourite country...". Around 20 acts will perform at ATP Iceland including Deerhoof, Chelsea Light Moving, Thee Oh Sees, Mugison, múm, HAM and many more. The festival site will host two indoor stages and a cinema with films, as well as the usual ATP extracurricular activities like DJs, Pop Quiz (hosted by Dr. Gunni) and much more.
